Here's a variation on those yellow "Live Strong" wristbands that honor Lance Armstrong and raise money to fight cancer. A bike shop and Web site sell black "Live Wrong" wristbands. One of the wristbands creator tells the Arizona Daily Star, "We drink beer and have fun." He says the bands aren't making fun of Armstrong, they're a "parody." Which brings to mind the old saying, "I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing beside you."
